SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of the Applications for Expansion The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing notice that SGS North America, Inc. (SGS), is applying for expansion of its current recognition as an NRTL. SGS requests the addition of three (3) recognized testing and certification sites and thirtynine (39) additional test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition. OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets the requirements specified in 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within its scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government authority. Recognition enables employers to use products approved by the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and certification. The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the application and provides its preliminary finding. In the second notice, the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These notices set forth the NRTL’s scope of recognition or modifications of that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page for each NRTL, including SGS, which details the NRTL’s scope of recognition. These pages are available from the OSHA Web site at http://www.osha.gov/ dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html. Each NRTL’s scope of recognition includes: (1) The type of products the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its applicable test standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical capability to perform the product testing and productcertification activities for test standards within the NRTL’s scope. SGS currently has six facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: SGS North America, Inc. 620 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee, Georgia 30024. A complete list of SGS sites recognized by OSHA is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/ sgs.html. 47439 II. General Background on the Applications SGS submitted four applications, two dated September 24, 2014 (OSHA– 2006–0040–0025), and two dated October 1, 2014 (OSHA–2006–0040– 0026 and OSHA–2006–0040–0028), to expand its recognition to include the addition of three recognized testing and certification sites located at: SGS Tecnos S.A., C/. Trespaderne 29, Edificio Barajas 1, 28042 Madrid—Spain; SGS Fimko, Ltd., Sarkiniementie 3, FI–00210 Helsinki, Finland; and SGS Baseefa Limited, Rockhead Business Park, Staden Lane, Buxton SK17 9RZ, United Kingdom. Amendments to the October 1, 2014, applications were received on January 14, 2015 (OSHA–2006–0040– 0027), and June 16, 2016 (OSHA–2006– 0040–0029). These applications requested the addition of 49 additional test standards to SGS’s scope of recognition, in addition to the three testing and certification sites. OSHA staff performed detailed analysis of the application packets and on-site reviews of SGS’s testing facilities on August 5, 2015, at SGS Madrid, August 13, 2015, at SGS-Baseefa and August 17, 2015, at SGS-Fimko, in which the assessors found some nonconformances with the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7. SGS addressed these issues sufficiently, and OSHA staff preliminarily determined that OSHA should grant the applications to expand SGS’s recognition to include the three additional recognized testing sites and 39 of the 49 requested standards.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Notice of the Applications for Expansion

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is providing 
notice that SGS North America, Inc. (SGS), is applying for expansion of 
its current recognition as an NRTL. SGS requests the addition of three 
(3) recognized testing and certification sites and thirty-nine (39) 
additional test standards to its NRTL scope of recognition.
    OSHA recognition of an NRTL signifies that the organization meets 
the requirements specified in 29 CFR 1910.7. Recognition is an 
acknowledgment that the organization can perform independent safety 
testing and certification of the specific products covered within its 
scope of recognition and is not a delegation or grant of government 
authority. Recognition enables employers to use products approved by 
the NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require product testing and 
certification.
    The Agency processes applications by an NRTL for initial 
recognition and for an expansion or renewal of this recognition, 
following requirements in Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. This appendix 
requires that the Agency publish two notices in the Federal Register in 
processing an application. In the first notice, OSHA announces the 
application and provides its preliminary finding. In the second notice, 
the Agency provides its final decision on the application. These 
notices set forth the NRTL's scope of recognition or modifications of 
that scope. OSHA maintains an informational Web page for each NRTL, 
including SGS, which details the NRTL's scope of recognition. These 
pages are available from the OSHA Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/index.html.
    Each NRTL's scope of recognition includes: (1) The type of products 
the NRTL may test, with each type specified by its applicable test 
standard; and (2) the recognized site(s) that has/have the technical 
capability to perform the product testing and product-certification 
activities for test standards within the NRTL's scope.
    SGS currently has six facilities (sites) recognized by OSHA for 
product testing and certification, with its headquarters located at: 
SGS North America, Inc. 620 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee, Georgia 30024. 
A complete list of SGS sites recognized by OSHA is available at https://www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/sgs.html.

II. General Background on the Applications

    SGS submitted four applications, two dated September 24, 2014 
(OSHA-2006-0040-0025), and two dated October 1, 2014 (OSHA-2006-0040-
0026 and OSHA-2006-0040-0028), to expand its recognition to include the 
addition of three recognized testing and certification sites located 
at: SGS Tecnos S.A., C/. Trespaderne 29, Edificio Barajas 1, 28042 
Madrid--Spain; SGS Fimko, Ltd., Sarkiniementie 3, FI-00210 Helsinki, 
Finland; and SGS Baseefa Limited, Rockhead Business Park, Staden Lane, 
Buxton SK17 9RZ, United Kingdom. Amendments to the October 1, 2014, 
applications were received on January 14, 2015 (OSHA-2006-0040-0027), 
and June 16, 2016 (OSHA-2006-0040-0029). These applications requested 
the addition of 49 additional test standards to SGS's scope of 
recognition, in addition to the three testing and certification sites. 
OSHA staff performed detailed analysis of the application packets and 
on-site reviews of SGS's testing facilities on August 5, 2015, at SGS 
Madrid, August 13, 2015, at SGS-Baseefa and August 17, 2015, at SGS-
Fimko, in which the assessors found some nonconformances with the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7. SGS addressed these issues sufficiently, 
and OSHA staff preliminarily determined that OSHA should grant the 
applications to expand SGS's recognition to include the three 
additional recognized testing sites and 39 of the 49 requested 
standards.

III. Preliminary Finding on the Applications

    SGS submitted acceptable applications for expansion of its scope of 
recognition. OSHA's review of the application files and its detailed 
on-site assessments indicate that SGS can meet the requirements 
prescribed by 29 CFR 1910.7 for expanding its recognition to include 
the addition of three sites and these 39 test standards for NRTL 
testing and certification listed above. This preliminary finding does 
not constitute an interim or temporary approval of SGS's applications.
    OSHA welcomes public comment as to whether SGS meets the 
requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition as an 
NRTL. Comments should consist of pertinent written documents and 
exhibits. Commenters needing more time to comment must submit a request 
in writing, stating the reasons for the request. Commenters must submit 
the written request for an extension by the due date for comments. OSHA 
will limit any extension to 10 days unless the requester justifies a 
longer period. OSHA may deny a request for an extension if it is not 
adequately justified. To obtain or review copies of the exhibits 
identified in this notice, as well as comments submitted to the docket, 
contact the Docket Office, Room N-2625, Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, at the above address. These 
materials also are available online at http://www.regulations.gov under 
Docket No. OSHA-2006-0040.
    OSHA staff will review all comments to the docket submitted in a 
timely manner and, after addressing the issues raised by these 
comments, will recommend to the Assistant Secretary for Occupational 
Safety and Health whether to grant SGS's applications for expansion of 
its scope of recognition. The Assistant Secretary will make the final 
decision on granting the applications. In making this decision, the 
Assistant Secretary may undertake other proceedings prescribed in 
Appendix A to 29 CFR 1910.7. OSHA will publish a public notice of this 
final decision in the Federal Register.
